Do NOT STOP, please ... !!

We have had several near-collisions in front of VRBC because parents dropping off Scouts do not pull all-the-way into a parking space. PLEASE help keep our Scouts SAFE by pullling into a parking space before you let them out. This will avoid DANGEROUS congestion in front of VRBC. Better yet, come on in and GET INVOLVED!! Also, please do NOT use the handicapped space UNLESS someone you are driving REQUIRES use of that space. That way it will be available to those for whom it is not only needed, but also NECESSARY. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our Scouts/Scouters SAFE!!
